About

Adventures in Everyday Places

It would be perfect if life could always be an adventure. This year, I’ve been fortunate to be part of many adventures, but social media never captures the day-to-day which is a lot more mundane. In-between adventures is a lot of downtime, and some of those downtime can be pretty down.

So, this year, I channelled negative energies and thoughts into lyrics: instead of reacting negatively, or internalising my own thoughts, I wrote them down. I spent a lot of time writing. And over the course of a few weeks during the summer, I collected those snippets of writing together turned them into lyrics. And then, I worked up those lyrics into songs – and I’ve called them “adventures in everyday places” because these were my adventures, good and bad, in everyday places.

And now I’m sharing them with you, so that you, too, may find adventures in everyday places.

Space

Lyrics to Si Chun Lam – Space (from the Adventures in Everyday Places EP) and YouTube lyric video:

In times of hate
We need hearts not hate
Music cannot solve everything
but maybe it can help soothe the pain

Criticise

Lyrics to Si Chun Lam – Criticise (from the Adventures in Everyday Places EP) and YouTube lyric video:

It’s easier to hate and criticise
than to build, create and recognise
tearing them down over a badly-worded text or tweet

Does it make you feel on top of the world
when you criticise them for what they said
while only looking at your own best intentions
while judging them by their worst mistake

Does it make you better when you think you’re right and they are wrong?
Does it make you stronger when you think you’re right and they are wrong?

Criticise, criticise, criticise is all you do
Criticise, criticise, criticise yourself
Criticise, criticise, criticise is all you do
Criticise, criticise, criticise yourself

Setting your target
for reaction from the crowds
to the words that you fake
for attention that you crave

Building them up
for a massive fall
to the words that you fake
for attention that you crave

Everybody makes mistakes
Instead of tearing them down
Give them the benefit of the doubt
Build them up and help them grow

Try Again

Lyrics to Si Chun Lam – Try Again (from the Adventures in Everyday Places EP) and YouTube lyric video:

Things are looking up
It's exhilarating and terrifying
Will this ever work out
Or will this end in disaster

But if it all falls apart
All you have to do is try
And if it all comes undone
All you need to do is try again

Try, try again
Just try, try again
Coz if you never try
You can never win

Would it last this time
Or would it all just crash and burn
If you never let go
You will never fly

Mundane

Lyrics to Si Chun Lam – Mundane (from the Adventures in Everyday Places EP) and YouTube lyric video:

I wanna find adventures in everyday places
Find beauty amongst the pain
I wanna find love in the ordinary
Find joy in the mundane

Coz life’s too short
to spend worrying
about people who don’t care
they don’t care ‘bout you

I wanna find adventures in everyday places
Find beauty amongst the pain
I wanna find love in the ordinary
Find joy in the mundane

Coz life’s too short
to spend wondering
find people who love you
love them with all your heart

Favourite Person

Lyrics to Si Chun Lam – Favourite Person (from the Adventures in Everyday Places EP) and YouTube lyric video:

I want to be your favourite person
coz you are my favourite one
I want to be your favourite person
coz you are my favourite one

All I need is someone to care about
You are that somebody I care about

I won’t let you down
I won’t let you down
I won’t let you down
I won’t
I won’t

Infinite

Lyrics to Si Chun Lam – Infinite (from the Adventures in Everyday Places EP) and YouTube lyric video:

I wanna be
not defined by
who I am
nor where I’m from

I wanna be
not confined by
what I believe in
nor who I choose to be

I wanna be
not limited by
who I love
nor who I choose to love

I wanna be
everything I wanna be
just as I am meant to be

Because I’m free
Because I’m me
Because I’m infinite
I’m everything I wanna be

I am unlabelled
I am unleashed
I’m unlimited
I’m everything I wanna be
